The tools every parent needs to help their teenager find the career of their dreams In Ireland, one in six students drop out of their chosen college course feeling disillusioned about their career path and uncertain about their future. This can deal a major blow to their self-esteem, not to mention the financial blow to parents who are paying the tuition fees. So whether you are a parent of teenagers starting secondary school or preparing to leave, it makes sense to be informed about practical ways to help your child take steps towards a successful future now. Most career advice in Ireland has a rather narrow focus when helping teens decide which college course to choose. Career Coach is different. By looking at the bigger picture – who they are and what they are good at – experienced and inspirational career guidance counsellor Dearbhla Kelly will empower you to help your teenager link their dreams to the reality of the world of work and reach their full potential. ‘This book will be of great help to parents who are supporting their teens to make sense of who they are and what they want to do with their life.’ Jennifer McKenzie, Director, National Centre for Guidance in Education (and parent to two college students!)
